* AdaptationDisplacement: The animated film is more well known than the ''Black and White'' manga it is adapted from.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Asian Kung Fu Generation (the ending song "Town In Blue") and Plaid? Hell yes!
* TearJerker: [[spoiler:White being stabbed by the Aliens and the police taking him into custody after he gets better]] could both qualify.
** The scenes of [[spoiler:Black's nervous breakdown]] and [[spoiler:Suzuki's death]] are pretty heartrending too.
* UglyCute: White, who is probably supposed to look normal, but the animation doesn't help.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: White for some people, at least until the bath house scene.
